Ergobaby has issued a recall for about 2,800 compact city strollers because the button on some buckles that releases the harness can break and detach when pressed while the child is in the stroller.

These were sold online at ergobaby.com, albeebaby.com and amazon.com from July 2018 through September 2019 for about $300. No injuries have been reported, but consumers should immediately stop using the recalled strollers and contact Ergobaby for instructions and a full free replacement restraint harness with buckle.
